Supporters of the Green Party are out and about in Southwark delivering copies of this letter from Caroline Lucas. Sadly, we can't get round to every single door in Southwark, so if you want to deliver to your street/block of flats, drop us a line email@example.com or check out our leafletting sessions here.

Please sign the petition and pass the link on to friends and neighbours.
